The Really Gay History Tour

It's time for Vancouver's secrets to come out of the closet. From drag kings and two spirit warriors, to queer church ministers and transgender crime fighters, this walking tour is a celebration of the unsung heroes who forever changed the social fabric of our city. This experience was researched, designed and is guided by Forbidden Vancouver Storyteller Glenn Tkach. It's perfect for any secondary or post secondary social justice, gender studies and civics courses, students groups, GSA groups and more.
